On the heels of the ZunZuneo Fake Twitter Program
HAVANA TIMES — A covert US government program to send young Latin Americans to Cuba for purposes of political subversion was made public by Associated Press on Sunday.
According to the news agency, the project by the US Agency for International Development (USAID) sent youth from Venezuela, Costa Rica and Peru starting in 2009 to Cuba “in the hope of encouraging a rebellion.”
In all, nearly a dozen Latin American were used in this program against Cuba, for a salary as low as US$ 5.41 an hour, paid by Creative Associates International, the subcontractor.
The Costa Ricans focused on putting on an HIV prevention workshop and other programs, while Venezuelans and Peruvians were sent to universities with the mission to recruit students to turn against their government.
Both this program and the ZunZuneo (false Cuban twitter program) are part of a big dollar effort by USAID to effect change in countries politically uncomfortable for Washington, and US government data proves it, said AP in its report.
